November 14 – Time for Futsal

November 14, 2015

Starting tomorrow (Sunday 11/15), there will be weekly futsal sessions at the Marion Cross School gym in Norwich (entrance to the rear right of the school). The sessions will run from 3:00 to 4:00pm each Sunday (except as otherwise announced) and are open to all Hanover soccer players. Futsal is an excellent opportunity to improve your soccer foot skills, get in a bit of fitness and have some fun on Sunday afternoons. Without question, those who play in the off-season are those who improve in the off-season, so this is particularly useful for those looking to ‘move up.’ At one quick hour – futsal is also a great opportunity for those playing other sports to get in a weekly bit of soccer. Wear flats or other non-marking sneakers and bring water and a gray shirt.

Futsal sessions are overseen by Watt Alexander, a futsal aficionado and experienced soccer coach. If you have questions, be in touch with Watt – wattalexander@me.com – or Coach Kennedy – dkennedy@dougkennedyadvisors.com

Again – these sessions are open to all HHS Soccer players (Reserve, JV & Varsity) . . . even seniors can play :)

November 9 – More Games? – Nope – Just a Championship

November 9, 2015

The Varsity girls finished the 2015 season on a high note yesterday at Bill Ball Stadium in Exeter. Coming out hard in the first 10 minutes, the girls gave themselves a 2-0 advantage over a strong Portsmouth side, and never looked back. The Division II Championship win capped a four game playoff run of shutouts and a final nine games in which our opponents only managed two goals. Yesterday’s weather was great and the fans were highly vocal and supportive . . . we couldn’t ask for more.


November 7 – The Final – We’ll be There

November 7, 2015

While the Varsity girls showed great stuff during Thursday’s (11/5) Semi-Final, the match showed at 0-0 following 100 minutes of regulation and overtime. However, the girls came through on PKs – taking the decisive chances in a 4-3 win over Oyster River.

and yes . . . this means the girls are headed to Final vs. Portsmouth this Sunday (11/8). Game time is 12:00 noon – and the location is Bill Ball Stadium in Exeter. The girls need and want your support – come on down to the Final for some fun.

November 4 – Semi is Good

November 4, 2015

The Varsity girls played tough and emerged with a 1-0 win over a dangerous Pembroke side on Sunday (11/1). While both teams had a number of chances, it was the Hanover girls that found the net halfway through the second period.

and yes . . . that means that the girls continue on to the Division II Semi-Final vs. Oyster River. The game will be played at 6:00pm on Thursday (tomorrow) 11/5 at Bill Ball Stadium in Exeter. You thought you had a quiet evening at home that night? You thought wrong – plan to be there and support the girls.

The girls will take on Pembroke (for the third time this season) tomorrow (Sun 11/1) at Pembroke at 2:00pm.
